Dream Nannies - Nanny & Au Pair Agency
Live-in Nanny Position - Kalgoorlie, W.A Jan 2019
Amazing experience for an experienced Nanny looking for a new adventure!
Our family are Flying Doctors & Pilots and have two lovely young boys aged 1 & 3. The parents work shifts, flying off into the desert to help out sick or injured people and flying them to hospital. They need a reliable, caring nanny to safely care for the children whilst they do this.
Their current Nanny is finishing in January and will need someone to take over from her. She has had a great time with this family and thoroughly enjoyed this experience.
The family have a large home with 5 rooms and two living areas make it the ideal home for a busy family, centred on the open plan dining, kitchen and living room it has many areas extending out from this family core so that if anyone needs time to themselves, for example for: Naps, Office work, Gym, Separate cinema/yoga room, reading room or out onto the air conditioned outdoor entertaining area, large rear yard and front
courtyard with views of the park; there is ample opportunity for activities and alone time on duty or off.
The nanny has a double sized room with wardrobe, queen size bed, night stands and shelves with double size windows beside it a spare room that, while the family dont have guests; will be your own private lounge/retreat. Bathroom a little up the hall is yours (except for kids bath time and when guests stay) and just down the hall from the boys room.
It affords easy access to family, or the ability to close the door and have some alone time.
Generous pay with affordable accommodation, car, food, internet, bonuses and travel - based on age & experience,
Hours per week: 40-45 hours a week average (Some heavy weeks, some light).
